The Origin of FirstSteps

About us 1

The brainchild of Managing Director Kirit Patel back in 1994, FirstSteps was originally created for the nursery attended by his own children. His expertise in computer software programming fitted hand in glove with the needs of a busy childcare business and so FirstSteps was born.
